BREAKING Saudi Arabia, in Reversal, Says Khashoggi's Killing Was 'Premeditated'

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor said on Thursday that the death of the Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi had been “premeditated,” the latest change in the kingdom’s official story of how he was killed.

Saudi officials previously said that a 15-man team that had flown to Turkey to confront Mr. Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2, leading to a “fistfight” with Mr. Khashoggi. When he screamed, one of the men put him in a chokehold, killing him accidentally, they had said.

The Saudi prosecutor’s new statement, which was announced through the kingdom’s state-run news media, said the conclusion was based on new information received from a joint Saudi-Turkish investigation taking place in Turkey.

The latest change is almost certain to cast further doubt on the kingdom’s explanation of what happened to Mr. Khashoggi. Saudi Arabia’s narrative has already been met with widespread skepticism, not least by President Trump and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey.

2. Liars

These animals change their story as much as the orange asshole here does. There is only one story that matters, this journalist is dead and the Saudi regime is responsible. Never forget 9/11 was brought to you by these fucks.

7. Didn't they have a top-level coroner to wield the bone saw?

That's something the Saudis haven't addressed in their continuing fantasy.

This would be gruesome if it happened in the civilian world. That it was likely instigated and controlled by the Crown Prince or one of his underlings is appalling.

8. Yes, that should be the narrative,

We don't need SA, but the corporate media says otherwise.

People from SA fought in Iraq and killed Americans. Taliban who were taught in Saudi financed madrassas in Pakistan killed Americans in Afghanistan.

How is it the narrative is that Iran is the #1 perpetrator of terrorism when to me it looks like it is SA. Why are we selling them arms to blow up children in school buses in Yemen?

Trump says we need to sell SA arms because it will create 1 million jobs. The truth of the matter is, it will create jobs in SA. They have an order for Blackhawk helicopters that will be assembled in Saudi Arabia.

There are 2 reasons that we kiss Saudi Arabia's ass today; 1. SA spends money on Trump's real estate that keeps his buildings above water. It was also instrumental in getting Jared's 666 Fifth Ave building out of hock. 2. Right wingers in Israel have made a deal with the devil to take out Iran and they want the U.S. to be a part of that war.

We need to invoke the Magnitsky Act and stop selling arms to SA.

11. HA HA HA LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Just substitute the "UNITED STATES" for SAUDI ARABIA, and that is what we will have if we do not at least take over the HOUSE....


BTW
How the fuck can the NYT write such a seemingly innocuous article like this when the poor guy was dismembered alive ??
